What the papers say:
aWhen historical fiction clicks, thereas nothing more gripping . . . and C.J. Sansomas fantastic "Sovereign" left me positively baying for more. Itas that good. . . . Rebellion, plots, torture, fanaticism, a murder mystery and a real historical scandal come alive in this deeply satisfying novel.a
aDeirdre Donahue, "USA Today"
aAuthors of the caliber of P. D. James, Ruth Rendell, Ian Rankin, and Minette Walters remain rare. C. J. Sansomas Sovereign . . . deserves as wide a readership as any of the above. . . . Itas deeper, stronger, and subtler than most novels in the genre.a
